Integrating primary care and specialty pharmacy practice to improve ambulatory patient care services



Integrating primary care and specialty pharmacy practice to improve ambulatory patient care services



Pharmacy Practice Management Quarterly 15(4): 1-7



This article describes the evolution of clinical pharmacy services in an outpatient setting over a 20-year period. An historical overview of the initiation of services, the state of current practices, and the development of a new clinical service--the medication management service (MMS)--to provide care for general medical patients is presented. Four case studies of recent patients managed by the MMS are given to illustrate the interrelationship between this service and the pharmacist-managed specialty clinics.
